Nice @cribs88... perhaps you could PM the Mods to capitalize L in limketkai and D in development as well as add "o" in Oro in the title...

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY — Limketkai Sons, Inc. will start construction of a 21-storey, 250-room hotel complex within the year in the company’s 30-hectare commercial complex in this city’s Lapasan district.


The Limketkai commercial center is considered the leading shopping center in the city since it is the most accessible and most complete in Northern Mindanao.

Alfonso Y. Lim, chief executive officer of the company, said the hotel project would cost roughly P700 million and is expected to be completed by 2010.

The hotel will be the tallest structure in Mindanao, and will have a four-star classification. The hotel complex will have the usual amenities and facilities such as a ballroom, a function room, a coffee shop, and a swimming pool.

It will rise on the west side of the Limketkai commercial complex between the company’s proposed Gateway building on the national highway and Rosario Strip, an upscale area near Robinsons Big R Super Center that hosts boutiques, wellness centers, coffee shops and restaurants.

The Limketkai Group, which is also into agribusiness, is controlled by the Lim family based here.

City Mayor Constantino G. Jaraula, who earlier commended local businessmen for laying out their investment plans in the city this year, praised the Lims’ hotel project. The mayor has made it a priority to boost the tourism.

Mr. Lim said the hotel will cater to businessmen as well as tourists. When asked if it will compete with the Mallberry Suites business hotel, which is adjacent to the Robinsons mall, Mr. Lim said the new hotel would complement the existing hotel’s operations.

The city has a number of major hotels aside from Mallberry, such as Pryce Plaza, Koresco, and Dynasty Court, catering to as many as 300,000 tourists arriving annually. Koresco Hotel, which was built by Korean investors, serves mainly Korean visitors.

In an interview with BusinessWorld late last year, Mr. Lim said Limketkai Sons, Inc. will convert its property in Lapasan district into the city’s new central business district. The plan includes the new Gateway building on the national highway, the new hotel, and an elevated walkway that connects buildings in the area.

Ayala to Put Up Center in Cagayan de Oro
Business World 01/17/05

Ayala Corp. plans to build a P4-billion complex in Bgy. Indahag in Cagayan de Oro that will feature shopping malls and high-rise condominiums. Ayala Corp. representatives visited the city hall recently to discuss the project. With an initial investment of P2 billion growing to P4 billion in several years. Cagayan de Oro currently hosts nine mixed-use shopping malls: SM City, Robinsons’ Big R SuperCenter, Limketkai Center, and three malls each for the Gaisano and Ororama groups. Limketkai, a pioneering mall developer in this city, is developing its Limketkai Center into a central business district. Aside from the shopping mall, the center now hosts open cafes, restobars, and a few townhouses. Limketkai mall also features an atrium that can accomodate 4,500 people. Limketkai proposes to put up condominium units, a hospital with links to US-based specialists, a commercial building for private offices, and a government building that will house local and national government offices. Part of its plan is the development of a one hectare area into a project with basement parking, ground floor department store, four modern theaters on the third floor, and a 320-room business hotel. The 30-hectare Limketkai Center opened in June 1991. So far, nine hectares have been developed. Two of the biggest locators in the center are Plaza Fair and Robinsons.

Limketkai area to be turned into business district

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY — Expansion of this city’s Limketkai commercial center will be completed within two years, the company’s chief executive told BusinessWorld last week.


The walkway connecting a new building on the Lapasan highway to Limketkai — Geefe P. Alba

The plan involves the conversion of the company’s 30-hectare property in Lapasan into the new Cagayan de Oro central business district.

Divisoria district, about two kilometers away, is this city’s traditional center of business and commerce.

Alfonso U. Lim, president and chief executive of the Limketkai Group, said the commercial complex plan includes constructing a four-star hotel; office condominiums and financial centers; providing space for "green area"; and putting up an information technology park.

"Our plan is to fully develop the Limketkai Center as well as to improve the ecological balance of the center by developing more green parks," Mr. Lim said.

"We would like to contribute to the economic and social growth of the city," he added.

Redevelopment of the area has been ongoing for close to five years. Although the commercial center has already been renovated from an open-roof shopping mall into an enclosed and air-conditioned building, it still has room for expansion.

At present, an elevated walkway connecting the second floor of the Limketkai center to the neighboring Gateway building is being constructed.

The Gateway building is located along the highway. It will house a fastfood outlet, drug store, coffee shop, bakery and convenient store. "We are constructing the Gateway building to serve as main entrance from the highway to the Limketkai mall. This will be 24-hour, open all-day business central for Cagayan de Oro," said Mr. Lim.

He said the building would "lure" commuters from the main highway who do not enter the boulevard leading to the main Limketkai shopping mall.

It takes a few blocks to get to the commercial center from the Lapasan highway.

To serve this market, Mr. Lim said the 24-hour business central would result in increased foot traffic. "The public can enter the Gateway building and walk a few steps to get to the different establishments," he said.

Pedestrians who want to proceed to the Limketkai mall can access the elevated walkway.

Mr. Lim said that the construction of the Gateway would be completed on the second quarter next year. One dining establishment, Skypark Restobar, will open by the end of December in time for the holiday season.

"We can rely on tourists visiting here," Mr. Lim said. He said that Limketkai's development plans were not focused on profit.

"The return on investment will take longer than in other cities like in Metro Manila," said Mr. Lim. "But this is more for love of Cagayan de Oro rather than on purely business motive."

Henrik Yu, one of the owners of Bigby's Cafe and Restaurant, said in a previous interview that locating in shopping malls increases the revenue turnover of the food business. "Our income increased by more than 20% when we transferred to shopping malls," he said.

He said that the outlet located in Limketkai center gets overcrowded with other branches such as the one at SM City.

"The market of Limketkai center has fully matured, many people get used to going to Limketkai," said Mr. Yu.

One advantage of Limketkai center is Rosario Strip, a small area that hosts upscale restaurants, coffee shops, wellness shops, and boutiques. "Rosario Strip is geared towards lifestyle where people stay there from late evening until early morning," said Mr. Yu.
